Celtic News: Grounded Brown in seventh heaven

1 year ago

In the latest Celtic news, captain Scott Brown has praised his team mates after Celtic won their seventh straight Scottish Premiership title.

The Hoops won it in some style as well after thrashing Rangers in an extremely one-sided Old Firm derby.

Two goals from Odsonne Edouard and a wonderful solo effort from James Forrest put Celtic into a commanding 3-0 lead at the end of the first half.

Star player Tom Rogic then curled in a fourth early in the second period before Callum McGregor added a fifth after just 53 minutes to rub salt into Rangers’ wounds.

It could have got more embarrassing for the visitors had Jak Alnwick not made a string of impressive saves to deny the champions.

Now Celtic can achieve a historic back-to-back treble if they beat Motherwell in the final of the Scottish Cup next month, and Brown knows they’ve got work to do ahead of that game despite being very proud of his team mates’ efforts.

“It was lovely, the way we’ve done it,” he said.

“The sun was shining and it was against Rangers as well, it was all about our performance today.

“We let ourselves down last week against Hibs but we managed to bounce back, and we bounced back in style.

“We worked on how we were going to press all week and we demonstrated that out on the park.

“The title hasn’t been won against Rangers for a long time and it is great. It is a great honour to be here when we’ve done it.

“To do seven in a row as well is fantastic but there is a lot more work ahead now, a few more games before the Scottish Cup final.”

The Bhoys are overwhelming favourites to win the Scottish Cup final at 1/5 with BetVictor while Motherwell are available at 10/3 them to spoil Celtic’s potential record.
